Bus routes in Perth, Western Australia are operated under the brand Transperth. The Public Transport Authority of the Government of Western Australia tenders the provision of bus routes to private operators; privatisation of services began in 1996, and was completed in 2001. Path Transit, Swan Transit and Transdev Perth currently operate services. Captain Cook Cruises similarly operates Transperth ferry services. The Public Transport Authority continues to operate Perth's urban rail system, under the division Transperth Trains.

Typical Perth bus routes operate every 10 to 20 minutes in peak times, and every 30 to 60 minutes off peak on weekdays. Services generally finish before midnight, though many routes finish earlier, between 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm. Weekend services are approximately half weekday levels. Major routes are more frequent, operating every 10-15 minutes off peak on weekdays, and every 15 to 30 minutes on weekends and evenings.

Most bus routes terminate in Perth, at Esplanade Busport, Roe Street bus station, or in East Perth, and at suburban bus stations or railway stations. Some services in older areas terminate by looping on suburban streets.

CAT routes are zero fare, circular services which operate in the central business districts of Perth and major regional centres Fremantle and Joondalup. They operate every 5 to 15 minutes on weekdays, and every 15 minutes on weekends except for Joondalup CAT routes. Similar circular services also operate in the Midland and Rockingham central business districts, although the Rockingham service charges a fare.

The CircleRoute (routes 98 clockwise and 99 anticlockwise) is a circular service which operates in inner suburbs of Perth, connecting major hospitals, universities, schools, shopping centres, and all urban rail lines.

Route 950 operates between Morley bus station, Esplanade Busport, University of Western Australia and QEII Medical Centre. It is the highest frequency bus route in Perth, operating up to every 1 minute in peak times, every 7 to 8 minutes off peak on weekdays, and up to every 10 minutes on weekends.[1] When introducing the route, the Public Transport Authority marketed it as the Superbus.[2]

Timetables are colour coded to indicate which area of the Perth metropolitan area they serve; green for the Northern area, red for the Eastern area, yellow for the South Eastern area, orange for the Southern area, and blue for the Western area. Timetables for CAT services are silver, and timetables for the CircleRoute and route 950 are aqua.
